I wrote about the first one in K-Fest 2011 on 10/2/11 Celebrates Kinnelon Community.
Since then, the event has only gotten better!
K-FEST is sponsored by KAMELOT and Kinnelon Borough officials.
KAMELOT, as described in KAMELOT Gets Ready For Kinnelon Community Event from the Tri-Boro Patch, "has been in the Kinnelon community for more than 16 years, sponsors presentations and programs that seek to steer the community's youth on the right path in terms of avoiding things like drugs, alcohol and behaviors such as bullying."
Futhermore, "KAMELOT is a county-funded municipal alliance, which means that the majority of the organization's money comes from seized drug and weapon funds. Additionally, the borough is required to match a certain amount of the funds." The organization includes members from the Kinnelon community -- the Kinnelon Police, the Kinnelon Public School system, and Kinnelon Borough Council. In 2011, Councilman James Freda served as the liaison to the organization.
Kinnelon's Borough Council is actively involved with K-Fest. You'll find them managing the BBQs, offering the best burgers and hot dogs around, and ready to talk!
